Straight From The Farmers Market

I love going to Farmers Markets and when I thought about how today is one of my first free Saturday's in a long time I thought it was perfect timing for checking out the Beaverton Farmers Market that I have never been to. I loved seeing all the rich fall colors in the produce and flowers growing this time of the season!
After picking up some flowers, apples, and pears, I stopped by the last stand to get some veggies and items for Salsa. The produce was being sold by a very nice Hispanic couple and when I asked the man how much for my items he said $2...what, that is not nearly enough! I asked if he was sure and he said "yes, only $2 for you and your bonita ojos"...awww, I think I might have to go back to them next week as compliments like that will make any girl happy!

It's really easy to make Salsa on your own, you just mix a few ingredients to together!

Here's what I mixed, try it and feel free to adapt to your liking! 5 Roma Tomatoes, 1/2 Onion, 4 Garlic Cloves, 1 Jalapeno Pepper (with no seeds), Cilantro Lime Juice, and Salt. Chop items and mix together...Enjoy!!
